Thresholds

River

I can see a threshold between night and day
Dawn

Between fire and water
Bush

Between country and city
Urban sprawl/country sprawl

Between war and peace
Treaty

Between killing and living
Love

Between soliders and community
Peacekeeping

Between love and hate
Tolerance

Between life and death
Dreams

Between dreams and morning
Creating

Between mind and body
Heart

Between self and others
Community

Between writer and words
The song of the muse

I can see a threshold between day and night
Twilight.

  1. I like how you come back around to the beginning. It’s all one big cycle, isn’t it?

    L.

  2. There is a really peaceful feel to this piece. I really enjoyed reading it – it lulled my senses.

  3. And the arrival of water, like the water here, provides yet another threshold for life. It is always a delight to see the different directions prompts like this take us.

  4. yes, water and fire, sometimes you need one and sometimes the other.

  5. Oh the one and the everlasting spiral of life – this is glorious in its seeming simplicity.
